Did This 3-Month-Old Just Say 'I Love You'?

Jul 25, 2015

We've heard of early talkers before, but this is ridiculous. In a YouTube video posted by user Ted Moskalenko, a baby described as a 3-month-old mimics a man saying "I love you" with very convincing similarity in tone and fairly audible diction (for an infant who can't yet actually talk).

Moskalenko writes on the post, "My baby boy Ben said 'I love you' for the first time. Good thing my wife had the camera rolling." We'll be checking back on Ben's status as a child prodigy in a few years' time.
